After lurking this forum for years and sometimes posting, we decided last year to start construction of our garage based HT. Thanks to Steve for encouriging me to start Yet Another Home Theater Construction Thread...
Since here in Europe our garages aren't that big as they are in the US, i don't have a lot of space to work with.
Below, you can see the garage how it once was...
The design process can be viewed in full on my site. What it's going to look like however (if all goes well) you can see in a short video by clicking this link.
As a screen image i used a still that was made from the intro generously provided by AVS member Reaper!
Pre-construction started somewhere in march 2005 IIRC. The first thing i did was build a seperation wall inside our garage:
Next, a water line had to be rerouted to the front of the garage, and from there to the garden:
A seperate electrical group was made just for the HT:
The yellow PVC pipe will be used to get the TV-signal (coax) and the ethernet-cable to the equipment closet:
The hose reel that was inside our garage had to be moved outside aswell:
With that, everything was ready to start construction of the HT itself.
